    Practicing some Russian Sentences

    K, I'm going to write down some sentences to practice some vocab and grammer and stuff. If there's any errors, let me know... please.

    Я Давью Ракетя вам.
    Вор Будет писать.
    Я Работал В Пеке.
    Не Спрашивай меня об Коте!
    Я нахал
    Ну..... Я Хорошо.
    Я ем табак.
    Они Сорои.

    Я Давью Ракетя вам.
    Sorry, I can't figure out what your trying to say

    Вор Будет писать.
    The theif will be writing. Correct

    Я Работал В Пеке.
    I can't tell what you're trying to say.

    Не Спрашивай меня об Коте!
    Don't sprint something about a cat? Once again, I'm not sure what you're trying to say.

    Я нахал
    Almost. Я-нахал. You need a dash when saying that you are a noun.

    Ну..... Я Хорошо.
    Close again. Ну... Мне хорошо. You use dative when describing how you feel.

    Я ем табак.
    I'm eating tobacco. Correct

    Они Сорои.
    Once again. I can't tell what you're trying to say. Maybe "They're littering"?

    Please provide translations
    Я знаю
    Что делаю
    Вилкою
    Пирогу

    Don't ask me about the cat.
    не спрашивай меня о коте.

    I couldn't figure out what you meant in the rest of them, that weren't already corrected.

    Re: Practicing some Russian Sentences

    Let me try!

    Я Давью Ракетя вам. - I'm giving you a missile.
    Вор Будет писать. - A thief will urinate.
    Я Работал В Пеке. - I worked in Beijing
    Я нахал. - I'm a smartass.
    Ну..... Я Хорошо. - Well... I'm well.
    Я ем табак. - I eat tobacco (or, m.b. cigarettes).
    Они Сорои.[/quote] - They are magpies ("сороки").

    Am I right?

    And then, may I correct other mistakes you made?! Your signature should be "Я живу дома." (and not "Я Жевуь В Доме.")!
    His signature could be correct (besides the soft sign at the end of живу), depending on the context.

    I live at home. - Я живу дома.

    I live in a house. - Я живу в доме.

    Thanks, very much. At least by posting up some sentences, I can get quick help from the experts, or people who know more than I. Thanks!

    Ummm, and the third and last sentence, I meant to be something else. But I probably mispelled. I was looking at my vocab cards to practice using them. Does сорока really mean that? K I have my vocab out in front of me. I meant to say суко I think....heh. Oh, and for the last Sentence, I meant нахал. This college site told me it meant jerk.
    Thanks!

    You mean сухо? сухой is dry. I think you must have copied something down wrong.

    OOOOO. Why is it Дома and not Доме? I thought that all nouns in prepostional case end in -e. Or did I overlook something in my notes? Oh well. I'm happy I can at least somewhat write russian sentences... not well I may add. But, at least I'm getting help, and therefroe I'll get better.

    dry= сухо, сухой; х is not equal to к. I still do not understand what it means. Они сухие? They are dry?

    By the way, do not take Gerty's translation seriously, she is joking.

    I picked random words from my vocab list... lol. Even if Gerty was joking, some of them were right. But next time I'll include translation so you can see where I went wrong.

    See, the thing is - they look right, but they are not. At your level you won't be able to tell which ones are wrong. She is just messing with you.

    I don't really know where you get these sentences, but I do not believe the word "urinate" was meant there. And technically speaking it is not "urinate", it is "piss". "Write" and "piss" have the same spelling in Russian, just pronounced differently. Anyway, start with the word "write" for your studies.

    Yea, I did mean piss. I was told originally the delat was right by some site. How do I express stressed letters when writing, capitalize them?
